Winter Garden

After consecutive days of rain, it was nice to welcome the sun this weekend.  And it was a lovely and warm 62 degrees too 🙂

These are the same succulent plants from previous years.  I like how these always turn a bit red on the tips during the cold season.

This clementine actually had lots of blossoms, but most of them dropped.  But somehow there are 2 fruits that are ready for picking.

The fruit was very sour and had way too many seeds.  I should have listen to other gardeners when they warned me about the seeds.

The Mexicola avocado tree is getting bigger.  I also topped off the main branch because it was getting so tall.  Being that our backyard is small, best to keep this tree pruned.

I actually told myself I was not going to add anymore plants to the garden.  But I couldn’t help it and I got 2 more plants.  The Forsythia plant and also the pineapple guava bush.  Pineapple guava is known to be carefree, drought resistant plants…. that sounds good to me!  Anyway I haven’t put them in the garden yet… when I do I will post an update.

  1. Hello

    I am passionate by avocado cores or would you Mexicola grande large grafts resistant to cold

    thanking you

  2. I envious your weather, do you have Fall at all? It’s amazing how everything looked so green in February, have you thought about planting papaya tree?

    • Our Fall seem to be an extension of summer of this year. I have grown papaya tree once but it didn’t make it to end of fall. I think papaya does well in hot humid environment like Florida or other southern US states.
